Program Overview

The Minor in Game Design and Development program uses individual and team projects to examine different game genres, game mechanics and playability, sound, level and interface design. You will acquire the expertise to define and develop game concepts, use storyboarding to develop game mechanics and build the game assets. A unique feature of the program is the game lab where students come together in interdisciplinary teams to build game prototypes.
